That's the spirit Davo!
Another photo of the McLaren Bellett has surfaced....this time it's a press release of the car just after it had arrived at John Sprinzel's Lancaster Mews workshop in readiness for prepping for the track.
Here's the text that was released with the shot....

Here's a couple more, my old Dutch mate Dick found these on Facebook.

And the second has got to be one of the best, showing the man himself with Mie Okazaki in the pit road in pre-race testing.
